Week 5 Results & Next week goals

Monday, August 12, 2013

SW: 260.2
LW: No weigh-in (AF visit)
CW: 250.2
Pound lost Week 5: None. (+0.2)
Pounds lost to date: 10 pounds

- Nutrition: Still craving sweets. Lots of high calorie days and eating out. Drank my 8 cups of water everyday and took my multivitamin and supplements as well.

- Exercise: no workouts. Bought a new bicycle on Saturday (my very first bicycle since childhood!). I rode my bike for 12 minutes that day (and felt like dying...ha!).

- Mind / motivation: did breathing exercises 2 out of 7 days. Goal was 4 out of 7 days which means I STILL HAVE TO WORK ON THIS. Listened the 2 happy songs selected for the week (love "I can see clearly now" by Johnny Nash).

***** Next week goals *****

- Nutrition: continue my spark streaks of drinking water and taking my multivitamin and supplements. Daily juicing. Finally use the veggie spiralizer I bought to create 1 new recipe.

- Exercise: Ride my bike at least 15 minutes a day / 4 times per week. Any other exercise done is a bonus this week. Will probably join a gym this or next week, so we'll see!

- Mind / motivation: Do breathing exercises 3 out of 7 days for 5 minutes each time. Listen to 2 new happy songs at least twice a week. Pray when feeling anxious.

    I FIND BREATHING EXERCISES TO BE HELPFUL FOR MANY REASONS.

STRESS RELEASE, BLOOD PRESSURE LOWERS AND YOU OXYGENATE THE BLOOD.
ALL IS REALLY GOOD FOR THE BODY AND MIND, DIGESTION AND SLEEP.!

Week 4 Results & Next week goals

Monday, August 05, 2013

SW: 260.2
LW: 250.0
CW: No weigh-in (AF is visiting)
Pound lost Week 4: N/A
Pounds lost to date: 10.2 pounds

- Nutrition: this past week I was craving sweets A LOT (thanks AF!). My eats were so-so. I ate "almost" my weight in ice cream... lots of high calories days (pretty sure I'm up a couple pounds). Went to On the Border with BFF and ate way too much.... (Chips and brisket tacos....what!!!)

At least, I drank my 8 cups of water everyday and took my multivitamin and supplements as well. I did try a new recipe from SP (single serve brownie) but it was just ok. Didn't drink enough freshly pressed juices and can feel the difference in my energy and mood.

- Exercise: no workouts. Not even SP "seated" workout. Lazy, lazy, lazy week!

- Mind / motivation: did breathing exercises 2 out of 7 days. Goal was 4 out of 7 days which means I STILL HAVE TO WORK ON THIS. Listened the 2 happy songs selected for the week (love "Brave" song by Sara Bareilles).

***** Next week goals *****

- Nutrition: continue my spark streaks of drinking water and taking my multivitamin and supplements. Daily juicing. Use the veggie spiralizer I bought to create 1 new recipe.

- Exercise: Try one of the SP "seated workouts". (Still recovering from minor surgery). Outside walk at least twice a week.

- Mind / motivation: Do breathing exercises 4 out of 7 days for 5 minutes each time. Read about the benefits of breathing exercises. Listen to 2 new happy songs at least twice a week. Pray, pray, pray when feeling anxious. Continue reading "The Spark" (last week didn't read much).

Survive AF visit!!
